Not much information on this movie, but it is worth watching.
I feel personally connected to some degree to this story. I travel frequently to Houston, Texas. The year that Hurricane Katrina hit I was in Houston for a day. the airport was a mess, and I noticed while I was delayed that all the local hotels were booked up. As I sat in the lobby watching the footage of the Louisiana Super dome roof getting ripped off by mother nature I could not help to notice that everybody I was talking too from New Orleans was White. When I finally caught my flight we actually flew right over the Hurricane and I still remember to this day how big it was, and how frightening it looked from 20,000 ft up. I had an eerie feeling that this was going to be bad. By the time I landed in Toronto the number of casualties had started to grown, and the levies had broken. I returned to Houston not a month later and by now we had seen the devastation caused by the storm. On this trip the focus had shifted from the Super dome to the Astro dome. On a recent trip back to Houston I was actually caught up in the middle of a tropical storm and I can assure you even though it was nothing like Katrina it was a very scary sight indeed.
Now the movie, I'm Carolyne Parker: The Good, The Mad, and the Beautiful. Is an incredible tale of survival and on how some people are able to succeed even when they are down. It is a story about community and faith helping people get through the most difficult times. It is a story that allows us to see that the glass isn't always half empty but rather half full. One day I intend to travel to New Orleans and on my journey I hope to meet Carolyn Parker. A women who should be an inspiration to all of us.
The footage was newsworthy, and the camera work and interviewing was perfect. I enjoyed this movie immensely and look forward to seeing it again very soon. If you remember this sad time in American history like I do then you will watch this movie and think. How. how could these events take place in the most advanced nation in the world and with such devastating effects. But at the same time you will also say, how could people who appear to have nothing, and lost everything continue to go on, and not only that but have the will to fight.
